You - First Poem I wrote

This is the first poem I have ever written. I was eight when I wrote this. 

I cry so loud
Yet no one hears
It is not easy to compose my fears
Life is not fun, its all a haze
But you keep me alive on my bad days
Just the thought of your skin on mine
Makes me sad, makes me cry
The dreams are so vivid
They feel so real
Just the thought of being away from you 
Makes me feel like I’m being killed
My lips turn blue
Because there is no longer air
My heart stops too
In thin air
My blood slows, cold as ice
It doesn’t feel good
It doesn’t feel nice
People say I act transparent
As if I’m the only on one this planet
But it’s you that keeps me alive
Helps me breathe
Won’t let me die
I close my eyes
Knowing sleep will not come
I close my eyes, I think of you
And my pain and suffering starts to numb…

    Whoa....you wrote this poem when you were 8 years old!? A lot of angst and introspection for an 8 year old. Extremely well written for such a young'un....actually this is written with more skill than many of the adult posts on the soup lol.
